Do you dream of someday visiting the rolling hills and breathtaking landscape of iconic Italian wine regions? Envision sipping on delicious wine varietals harvested from Tuscany, Veneto, and Lombardy, all produced with the intent of creating beautiful wines. It has always been a bucket list goal of mine to travel to Italy and experience wine tasting in one of the most gorgeous places in the world. While I may not be able to physically be in Italy right now and make my dream a reality, I am lucky to share some incredible Italian wine that we can all sip on together in the meantime.
Caposaldo Wines are hang-crafted varietals all harvested from the classic wine regions mentioned above. With Caposaldo meaning “benchmark” in Italian, their mission is to create varietals that are the standard for amazing and high quality Italian wines. All grapes are hand harvested and they make everything from Chianti, Pinot Grigio, Prosecco, Moscato, and more (including a Sparkling Peach that is definitely on my list of wine to try!).
Here I have two varietals Caposaldo shared with me that I think you will definitely want to pick up at your nearest wine retailer or online. The other night we enjoyed this 2018 Chianti which is harvested from rolling hills in Tuscany (can you imagine how beautiful!). This blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malvasia offers a versatile food pairing selection and is an “easy to sip” wine.
The second varietal, a 2019 Pinot Grigio is a refreshing and crips varietal harvested from Northern Italy in Delle Venezie. This wine is made of 100% Pinot Grigio grapes and is completely oak-free. This wine also offers a ranging of pairing options from cheese, to pizza, to white meat.
Next time you catch yourself daydreaming of an Italian getaway, make sure you are sipping on some Caposaldo wine in the process.
